I just got it out of the shop where he replaced a coil. Had it out on the water Saturday for about 5 hours and it ran great. Got back and got the motor flushed and headed home. About 30 minutes after running the fuel/carb line dry, I smelled something burning and could see smoke coming out of the cowling. I pulled the hot wire off the battery (in case it was an electrical short) and pulled the cowling. White smoke was coming out from under the flywheel. Mechanic says it needs a bunch of electrical stuff fixed and will cost another $250 to fix. My question to you guys would be, how reliable are these old motors? I already have $200 in repairs and I am looking at another $250 to get it running again. Would I just be better ooff to junk it and buy a newer motor? Thanks. I'm TexasRed, by the way. I'm out of Charleston, SC. Nice to meet all of you.
